The Gateway Pundit reported on January 9th that the FBI in Georgia stepped in and shut down the forensic analysis of shredded ballots, took the ballots away from the forensic team, and brought them back to the shredder to destroy the evidence. 

This story was first reported by Patrick Byrne, the former CEO of Overstock.com.  He reported on Twitter that the Deep State was stealing evidence in Georgia related to the 2020 Election:

Update on Georgia ballots: DHS had been trying to move forward this week. Two days ago FBI jumped in claiming jurisdiction. Yesterday 3 PM FBI took control of shredding truck and materials, directed they be returned to shredding operation and the shredding job completed.

We now have more information regarding this incident from individuals with knowledge of the events.   
This all started when a shredding company was hired to come in and shred election material.  

When the truck arrived at the scene, the material asked to be shredded turned out to be ballots and other official records from the 2020 election.  The company began shredding the material into little balls which are basically impossible to piece back together once they are shredded in that manner.

After the shredder operator obtained the material to shred he noticed something unusual and eventually connected with members of the Trump team who were in Georgia at that time.  He explained the situation and brought the material to this Trump-related group.  This group of individuals who were connected to the investigation to uncover the 2020 election fraud immediately began sifting through what was not yet fully destroyed.  They reportedly found shipment transit receipts linked to China, ballots, and other sensitive information related to the 2020 election.

A local DHS investigator was also invited to review the material.  When the China information was found, the information was immediately shared with the Trump White House and the DHS in Washington DC.  One of our sources believes it was the DHS in Washington that then notified the FBI about the situation.

Within a short period of time, the local DHS investigator was pulled off the case by a very senior individual with the DHS.   Soon thereafter, the FBI showed up and ordered the investigation to be shut down.

The FBI insisted they had jurisdiction over the review of these ballots in Georgia. They took control of the shredding truck and materials and demanded the shredding operation be completed.

Fortunately, there were photos taken of some of the information found in the shredded material before the FBI ordered it destroyed.

This investigation was thwarted by the FBI.  The evidence was destroyed.
